Ever since I made Nom Nom Paleo‘s Ginger-Sesame Sauce from her newest cookbook, I’ve been pouring it over everything – I use it stir fries, as a marinade for chicken, and most recently, as a salad dressing.
It’s so versatile, and I figured I’d share my obsession with you with a salad I made (and served with some simply roasted salmon!)
A while back, I was getting more requests for “meaty” recipes – pork, chicken, seafood. So, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been ramping up the “meaty” recipes.
Now, I’m getting more requests for vegan and vegetarian meals! And because I’m all about making recipes that both you AND I would enjoy, I’m sharing a ridiculously delicious salad from my friend Gena’s recently new cookbook, Power Plates!
I took a poll after sharing the behind-the-scenes of cooking this recipe and asked if my Instagram fam would make this dish. I was surprised by how many people said no, followed by “because I don’t know where to get rutabaga or how to cook it.”
First off, you MUST try rutabaga, it has a great mild nuttiness and has a very pasta-like consistency. Second, if you ever don’t like the veggie noodle used in a recipe, just substitute your favorite veggie!
If you’re a breakfast for dinner type of person, you’re going to love today’s simple dish with a twist that makes it suitable for dinner: a savory tahini sauce that adds an extra oomph to an otherwise very basic meal!
I drizzle raw tahini on literally everything (I even dip my veggies in it!), but this fresh herb tahini (adapted from this Bon Appetit recipe) adds a herby tang that goes so well with the yolky fried egg and veggies.
Most importantly, happy 28th birthday to my little sister (she’ll always be little to me!), Felicia! You ended 27 with marrying the love of your life, I don’t know how you’re going to beat that, but you will!
And since my sister started eating chicken last year, I figured I’d share a chicken recipe that she might want to try! AKA, I’ll make it for her the next time she comes over for dinner!
Today, Luca is 5 months old! Every month that goes by, I say the same thing: “I can’t believe he’s already ___ months old!”
Time is truly flying by, and I’m especially savoring our moments together, because once I’m back home in NJ (I’m in Florida right now with my parents and the baby), the nanny starts and I won’t get him all day long to myself.
